Many drivers won’t drive behind trucks since they obscure their visionof the lane. This inventionis the solution since the imageson the screen depict the lanein frontof the truck.
trucks move slowlyor emit smelly fumes, drivers may optto go around the truck. Head-on collisions occur when drivers strike whatis in the lane with oncoming traffic.
The screen will show driversif there are objectsin the oncoming traffic laneor if it is safeto pass the truck.
The screen adaptsto both light and dark driving conditions.
The “safety truck” has already been tested, and Samsung has confirmedit can save lives.
The technologyis simple. Thereis a wireless camera mountedon the frontof the truck which displays the lane aheadon a screen mountedon the back wallof the truck.
Watching the imageson the truck’s screen can easily distract the driver. While you are driving, your eyes scan the peripheryof the road.If a screen with imageson it is in frontof the driver, the driver might focuson the screen and not the restof the road.
Since the purposeof the truckis to make passingon a two-lane road safer,it maybe uselesson a multi-lane highway.
The cost, still unmentionedby Samsung,is likelyto be so expensiveit might not come into frequent use. Although currently noton the market,Samsung is now working with governmental agenciesto advance their new invention.
